Craft also Easter chickens from paper cups, Decopatch paper and fun feathers!
You can't drink out of these paper cups anymore, because there are 2 holes in it. But there can be Easter eggs in!
From paper cups you can easily make nice chickens yourself, with moving wings and real feathers. They must look nice on the Easter table, with naturally delicious chocolate eggs in. The wings are rotatable due to the split pins. Split pins are very handy plugs, which you really need to have as a craftsman! Because you can fold the legs of the split pins wide, they can be used in many crafts.
How we made these Easter chickens, and what you need for them, we'll show you step by step below.
Supplies:paper cups, 2 or 3 different Decopatch papers, Decopatch glue with tassel, scissors, pin pin, 2 split pins per chicken, eyelets and feathers.
Roll a cup on the design paper and pass it with a pencil to determine the size. Cut out the shape, better a little too big, because you can still cut some more.
Wrap the shape around the cup and glue it to the back. (An adhesive tape is also enough:). Cut the protruding parts at the bottom and fold over
With Decopatch you glue the cut particles very easily and nicely tight to the bottom of the cup.
Cut wings from a piece of packaging cardboard (eg. cornflakes box) Glue the wings thinly with a tassel and put the paper on top. Gently push on and smooth out from the middle.
Cut back the protruding paper and fold it back with glue. This is very easy and the edges become nicely tight.

Punch a hole at the top of the wing and then immediately a hole in the cup. Insert the splits through both holes and on the inside of the cup fold the legs of the split pin apart.
Now the wings are stuck, but are simply rotatable due to the split pin. They can't fly away just yet!
The eyelets are cut out THIS Decopatch paper, but you can also use other (wiggling) eyelets, or buttons, beads, etc.
The thin eyelet paper is a bit translucent, therefore the eyes are first glued to white paper, then cut out and only then glued to the cups.
Cut out triangles for the beaks from cardboard and glue them with red paper. Stick them up, and finally stick the stubborn feathers on the inside of the cups. That's all!
